Opal Earrings

     This is a pair of Idaho Spencer opal earrings.  Spencer opals are typically in the form of triplets.  The thin layer of opal is shaved off, a colorless quarts cap is cemented to the top and a piece of black jet is cemented to the back.  More on this process is on the Spencer Opal Mines site.   These earrings are 10 mm X 15 mm.

Happy birthday little sister :)
